About Filippo

Verified profile

Hi, Thanks for checking me out! Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, all the way back to Cagliari, Italy, where I was born and raised. During these formative years, while studying classical guitar, private tuition in jazz guitar particularly fuelled my passion for modern styles, providing me with a window to the fascinating world of rock, jazz and blues. Nowadays, as a freelance session guitarist and guitar tutor, I have a wealth of experience in live music, studio recording, teaching, session playing and songwriting and I enjoy the versatility and creativity of working across a wide range of musical genres, from to Soul, Motown, Funk, Pop, R&b and Rock. I always like to put my spin on the songs I cover, whether working out an acoustic fingerstyle arrangement or improvising on the electric over some popular R&B songs. I have worked with some superb musicians and performed for many events and venues, such as The Barbican, Tobacco Dock, The Shard, The Rosewood Hotel, The Glasshouse in Newcastle, City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds and Corinthia London. Gibson Les Paul Standard, Charvel and Taylor are my go-to gear to give me the versatility to cater to a broad range of styles and genres as needed.

The evening was perfect: great music, fab atmosphere and the dropouts were just great. Our customers really liked them and I can't wait to have them back in a few months. Kudos to them!

Our company event went seamlessly: employees had a great time at the rhythm and sound of the dropouts, going from 1960s classics to 1980s rock and straight into 1990s britpop and more. Would definitely recommend: they got everyone to sing along and everyone just chilled the whole night. Will book again as soon as we can. Jay

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be flexible to help ensure your event runs smoothly. If timings change slightly during the event run-up, just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely and I offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 45 minutes to 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as my equipment is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I craft the setlist based on what works best for your event, however, I am happy to chat through what songs you like the most.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?


Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to discuss this with you. I offer up to 3 songs of your choice for free and I will need at least 40 days notice.
